Chittagong University (CU) is not joining the integrated admission test of public universities under the University Grants Commission of Bangladesh (UGC) in the current year. As a result, the university will take the admission test as per the previous rules. 

The decision was taken at the 238th meeting of the Academic Council chaired by Professor Dr. Shirin Akhtar, Vice-Chancellor of the university, two professors, including a faculty dean, said on Thursday night. 

However, no one responsible for the university has officially given any details.

The two professors who attended the meeting said that all aspects of the integrated admission test were discussed in detail in the Academic Council. 

The Chittagong University has honored the vision given by the President and the Chancellor of the University to reduce the cost of labor, money and time of the admission test. But the 1973 Ordinance and distinctiveness of the university must be kept intact. 

So this year, although the integrated admission test is conducted under the supervision of UGC, we will not participate, but will observe, they said. 

Various issues were discussed, including conducting admission tests, formulation of question papers, risk of question papers leakage. Apart from this, the issues of risk examination center, regional threats and influence of different universities had also come under discussion, they also said adding, “After the discussion, it was decided not to participate this year.” 

Earlier in the afternoon, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) had decided not to participate in the integrated admission test.
